For the most accurate price inquiries, we recommend giving us measurements in inches and placement of tattoo!
Our shop is located just behind the YMCA!
There is a $60.00 minimum charge for tattoos. Most appointments require at least a $20 deposit which comes off the price of your tattoo. We can take walk-ins depending on the tattoo design and artist availability!
You must be at least 18 years with photo ID to get a tattoo. State of Wisconsin does not allow minors to get a tattoo even with parental consent.
We no longer do anything piercing related: sell jewelry, change jewelry or pierce!
